Dozens of characters make an appearance in this fascinating one-man-show by the fearless and celebrated French choreographer Maguy Marin. Using simple props, actor David Mambouch skilfully creates a moving gallery of portraits in this intriguing, austere performance. His own identity is concealed behind a succession of images of faces – some are familiar, others are not. Adopting and shedding personas as often as his costumes, he switches from one identity to another, expertly adjusting his gestures and posture to each. Male and female, old and young, celebrities and strangers: his precisely timed movements describe his characters without uttering a single word.
Singspiele is a show about listening, about hearing the stories held behind mute faces and acknowledging our primal need to be recognised.
“The actor David Mambouch … firmly holds the reins of this performance, surrendering his body like modeling clay to all the ages and body types whose faces he impersonates.” Le Monde
“This solo, driven by the excellent David Mambouch, is the most understated and concentrated piece Marin has created in a long time.” Artistik Rezo

You may have noticed some new faces around the building... With 2017 drawing to a close, we're already gearing up for the new year, including welcoming some new faces to the Project team. And while we're very excited to have some new additions on board, we're also incredibly sad to wave goodbye to Claire O'Neill who has joined THISISPOPBABY as General Manager. Claire has been General Manger of Project Arts Centre since 2013, overseeing management and operations, as well the development of Project's new strategic plan, Project 2020.

Inner City Helping Homeless collected over 7,500 shoeboxes during their Dublin Fill a Luas appeal last Christmas. We want this year to be even bigger and we need your help. Christmas is fast approaching, and while the festive season is a time of celebration for most of us, it can also be a tough time for many people, not least the homeless community. Here in Temple Bar we’re acutely aware of the hardships faced by people who sleep rough on our streets, and with record increases in homelessness this year, now, more than ever, they need our help.
